Question about Asko D1776 Built-in Dishwasher
Out of the blue (the dishwasher wasn't even running), the lights on my Asko Dishwasher D1776 began to all flash in addition to a flashing F2 error message, plus the machine began making a continuous, load noise. I tried holding the dishwasher's buttons down for several seconds to get it to restart, but this does nothing. The only way I've been able to get the noise and flashing to stop is by cutting off the electricity to the circuit that is connected to the dishwasher. Any ideas about what's causing this and how I can fix it? Thanks.
I have the same problem (F2) with my 1776. they said it was a overfill sensor. I pulled to first kick plate off but can't get to the 2nd. any suggestions on how to do this? thanks!

I have had this problem twice. It was caused by a piece of food getting stuck in the removable drain and preventing the dishwasher from draining properly resulting in a pool of water in the dishwasher. First, remove the removable drain and clean it out. This time I ran the dishwasher to drain the pool of water. After draining the water it continued to run and had the flashing F2 error message. After turning off the power to the dishwasher I used towels to try to remove as much water as possible from the foam behind the lower panel. Then I left the power off and waited 36 hours. During that time I turned the power back on a couple of times, but the motor churned and it had the flashing F2 error message. After the 36 hours it had apparently dried out sufficiently and worked fine.

This was very helpful! Only 2 weeks ago I replace the circulation pump on my Asko 1855. Today, when I turned the power on, the F2 error message appeared. I removed the face plates and discovered there was a lot of water in the drip pan. I found the cause to be a small leakage on one of the hose connections. After removing all the water, the water level switch worked properly.

Thanks for info it solved the problem.
I have a Asko D3132, our kitchen drain blocked and subsuquently the washer couldn't empty and unbeknowns put water into the underneath tray. The F2 error displayed and washer kept trying to empty even when I switched the machine off. Took off backplate where the water would have engaged the float causing the problem.
All you need to do is tilt the washer and water will flow out without removing back plate.
Now going well.

F2 is caused by water collecting in the sump under the diswasher which triggers a polystrene float to raise to contact a relay. To fix pull the dishwasher out and remove the back plate. However this may require a special screw driver bit - for my Model Asko D3132 I had to use a Torx T15 bit which I had becasue I had a laptop tool kit which came with this. Once the water is removed you can wiggle the polystrene float and hear it release the relay. (optional as the removal of water will aollow float to drop slightly back to its position. Good luck

Water accumuates in the drip pan and causes the F2 errors. Remove the kick plate and the plate behind. There was quite a bit of water to be removed. We uses seeral Sham-Wows, then finished wi a blow dryer. The dishwasher work perfectly once the drip pan was free of water.

Thanks for all for ther tips.
I have Aske DM 44, same F2 error in display and motor is running contantly. In this model you have to remove the backplate (where the in/out water tubes + power cable are) in oder to see the motor area and bottom plate(sump) for collecting water. In my case lots of water (1-1.5 Liter i guess) accumilated in the sump. So i removed water and dried the area for moisture. Powered up and no more F2 error and machine is back to normal.
The mistary is how so much water got collected in sump in the first palce.

This was all helpful. Unfortunately the part I needed - Asko 8051530/Viking PD310019 Dishwasher Mini Pressure Switch is no longer made. Rather than purchasing a new dishwasher, I bypassed the part with a paperclip and clamped the hose closed. I ran 3 washes with no issues. I purchased a cheap battery operated flood alarm and placed it the base in case it ever leaks. I do not recommend doing this however it will work. I wrapped it with electrical tape before closing it up.
I plan on replacing when doing an upcoming kitchen renovation.

I had an f2 error code. Took the two lower front kick panels to expose the lower sump tray. This was filled with water and the sump water level switch was tripped, causing the f2 error code. I sucked the water out with a shop vac and the appliance resumed normal operation. NOTE: my particular problem was caused by a garbage disposal that was installed that did not have the dishwasher connection plug knocked out. ( a rookie mistake)

Could be that water has leaked under the unit and caused the unit to cut out. Pull the unit out and check for water in the pan. Then identify the source of leak
